Final report - October 2007
This study, financed by the European Commission, was undertaken by Ramboll Management. The conclusions and opinions presented in this report are those of the Consultants and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the European Commission.
The study which measures the administrative burden for farmers arising from the 2003 Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) reform was carried out for the European Commission (Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development) in 2007.
It provides an assessment of the existing administrative costs for the Single Payment Scheme (SPS) in five selected Member States (Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland and Italy) in 2006. The study explains the differences between the Member States and presents an outlook on further expected developments and the administrative costs for the near future.
